Mozilla Works to Entice Mobile Devs to Their Firefox OS Phone

In an attempt to build interest among mobile developers, Mozilla has announced it will make two “Developer Preview” devices running its Firefox OS available to interested parties.

AllThingsD:

The two “developer preview” devices are being created in partnership with Geeksphone and Spanish carrier Telefonica. Telefonica has already said it will support the Web-based operating system on commercial devices expected later this year.

In a blog posting on Tuesday, Mozilla said, “Developer preview phones will help make the mobile web more accessible to more people. Developers are critical to the web and to Mozilla’s mission to make the web accessible to everyone.”

The devices are unlocked. The low-end device, the “Keon,” has a Qualcomm S1 processor and 3.5-inch touchscreen. The higher-end device, the “Peak,” features a dual-core Qualcomm chip and a 4.3-inch screen.

Mozilla CEO Gary Kovacs will discuss the Firefox OS project when he takes the stage at AllThingsD’s “D: Dive Into Mobile” conference in April.
